The Opportunity

Salary up to 60k

The Virtalis R&D team is full of very talented people across several disciplines: architecture, development, ops, QA, UX, and more. The team is responsible for all of the Virtalis software products: Visionary Render, GeoVisionary and Virtalis Reach. We achieve this by working in a number of smaller groups (Scrum), and we are expanding.

As our talented team of contributors grow, so must our capability to support them and enable everyone to work effectively together to deliver our ground-breaking technologies.

The ideal person for this role is somebody who lives and breathes the ideals of servant leadership and deeply cares about helping others succeed in their work and careers. You are comfortable presenting to, and communicating with, stakeholders such as customers, customer success, support and executive leadership.

Working with the head of software development, you will

  • Build and nurture high-performing software engineering teams, whilst fostering a collaborative, product-focused environment
  • Manage the successful release of our products for each iteration transparently and reliably, while ensuring quality
  • Work closely with key stakeholders, UI/UX, and product management to realize our technical roadmap
  • Support your teams in their daily work, keeping them informed of relevant developments, removing roadblocks and ensuring success
  • Guide the personal development of the team members, identifying skill gaps and providing training opportunities and direct coaching
  • Nurture a safe and open environment where people feel comfortable seeking feedback to better themselves and the product

This is a hands-off (no code) role, however a solid technical background is just as essential as excellent communication skills for achieving your day-to-day support of the teams.

What we're looking for

You have experience in a senior or lead software development position and are looking to move into more direct people management, OR are in a similar management role and looking for a new challenge with innovative and exciting technology.

Additionally, these are a plus

  • Experience in design, development and delivery of complex enterprise software products
  • OOP languages (we mainly use a mixture of C++, C#, and JavaScript / TypeScript across our products)
  • 3D graphics concepts (via game engines, or CAD tools or data)
  • Scrum or similar agile ways of working
